    A) Boxee installed. Then it failed to configure because dependencies are missing. The dpkg command does not resolve dependencies. You can run apt-get with the -f switch to have it try and download any missing dependencies (which assumes the dependencies *can* be resolved and that they're available for download in the repositories you have configured.)

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    Google: debian package management apt-get dpkg

    B) You will not be able to use Netflix streaming with Boxee on Linux.
